My sister and I stayed here for one night on 15th October 2011 as we were walking locally the next day. I can see what people are complaining about. The manager was a bit distracted when it came to admin and practical things but not so it must be said when he was serving food which he did with an enormous smile on his face. The service was a bit hit and miss at times but after a while we realised that they were a skeleton of staff who did everything and were always busy. The rooms although luwuriously done out and again with a bit of flair, were starting to looked a bit shabby around the edges. They need an odd job man to come in and tackle all of that. Having said all of that we were prepared to ignore all of that because of the stunning food in retaurant and we could see that we were staying in a special place. The Old Inn was very old and the architecture of the building and its grounds was so pleasing with it's low ceilings, big open fireplaces and cosy snug rooms. They had some nice ales on tap. It was decorated with real style and warmth using lovely colours on the walls wood and textiles and there were woollen blankets on every armchair. The restaurant is in an extension at the back of the pub and is rather like a summer house so the light streamed in. The total cost of the food inluding earlier aperetif and bar snacks for a three course meal with wine was £85 for two. For that quality it was reasonable and portions were generous. The cleanliness and bed quality were excellent and yes take ear plugs if you're a light sleeper as the rooms are close together. We loved it and you cannot beat it's close location to the very beautiful Stroud Valleys. We paid £120 for a double room
( Cake and Ale ) incuding a gourmet breakfast with all local produce. Probbaly a bit over priced.
